Zoe’s Peculiar Journey Through Time

Theatre-Rites and Burgtheater, Vienna co-production 2021.

Zoe, a modern millennial girl, is getting ready for a night out. But suddenly, something very peculiar happens and she is catapulted a hundred years into the future to a mysterious island.

The island, made entirely of plastic waste, is home to two strange and wonderful creatures. What has happened? Zoe doesn’t have time to think before her real adventures begin.  Sent on a quest by an Ancient Spirit, she sets off to explore – solving riddles and helping new friends out of trouble, all the while searching for a mysterious deep-sea treasure. And only then can she find her way home.

Zoe premiered at the BurgTheater in Vienna in 2021.
